Chris Smith Taking A Detour

Chris Smith is not going to be directing Pride and Prejudice And Zombies (I’m starting to think nobody will be) but is instead prepping a new film he’s written himself, something called Detour. The title says Edward G. Ulmer, but an interview with the director’s comments say… well, Edward G. Ulmer meets Sliding Doors.

Here’s what Smith told Screen Daily:

It’s about how one decision can carve two entirely separate destinies… a modern re-spin on the film-noir genre with a structural shake up.

The various financial incentives for film production that are available in Canada mean that the land of the maple syrup donut is a very likely home for this low budget production. Of course, this pretty much goes without saying these days. I think I’ve got about 2000 hours of footage of Toronto in my DVD library. Seeing as the plot details a road trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, places that are dripping with famous landmarks, I’d imagine there will have to be at least little bit of shooting in the States too.

I hope Smith understands that you can’t make a noirish road trip called Detour unless a woman accidentally-ish gets strangled by a telephone cable.
